Brain Drain – Fragility

Fragility – the fragility of feeling secure – is an installation made from gorse (whin) bush collected around my home in the west of Ireland. The work explores what it is like for me navigating life as a new mother and artist living in the west of Ireland. It is suspended from the ceiling and shaped like a cloud as the thoughts of feeling secure as an artist now that I am a mother are always there in the back of my mind, hanging over me.
